Horse sports have long been unique in that women compete on equal terms with men — and win. But horse racing was one area where women were denied access, unless in a non-physical role such as ownership, because the sport was deemed too tough, too demanding for the “weaker” sex. In the 1970s, that all began to change as women made inroads as jockeys, grooms, exercise riders, veterinarians, and trainers. Now, women play an ever-increasing role in the Thoroughbred racing industry, from the front offices to the backstretch to the farms and all points in between. In Women in Racing: In Their Own Words, by the father-daughter team of John and Julia McEvoy, women in all facets of the industry share their stories. Well-known sports commentator Charlsie Cantey, top trainer Jenine Sahadi, and retired jockey Donna Barton are among the women profiled.
